Recently my exploration of the natural world has begun to resemble a spiritual journey. As I have become more attuned to the native Australian environment it seems to have it’s own collective intelligence; it’s own moods, knowledge and multiple personalities. The understanding that our natural environments are very much ephemeral has stimulated new inquiries into artistic methods to express these universal ideas. 

Fire and Brimstone !

Recently I have become concerned with the threats that anthropogenic climate change pose to the natural world. I have started digitizing  my landscape paintings and using a laser-cutter to burn these images into natural material such as wood. With piercing precision, smoke and flames, this machine adds a sense of  the destructive brutality that the climate poses to these once pristine environmental scenes. 

Painting processes

A step by step timelapse video showing some of the processes I have developed in my landscape paintings. Enjoy!

Beautiful music and painting combined

Musicians Steve Sedergreen and Michael Jordan connect and improvise to my painting of the Rockpools and Ocean waves at Powlett River near Kilcunda. I edited this video to capture the result, totally unrehearsed and unscripted music that fuses seamlessly with the colours and details of the painting. It is an invigorating collaboration with beautiful results.

Image transfer magic!

This timelapse shows some of the processes that I have developed to make these limited edition transfers at an archival  quality to be able to put on display without requiring mounting behind glass.
